On the 26th September 11 teams from hospitality came together and ran the Great Manchester 10k for the Tim Bacon Foundation. There were 90 runners from Australasia, Blackhouse, Tattu, Grand Pacific, Barlows Electrical, Gaucho, Alchemist, Robinsons, Arc Inspirations and Gusto.
Shortages in staff and the petrol crisis meant that some people unfortunately had to drop out last minute. Big Shout out to The Alchemist Leeds who drove around for petrol for 40 mins with no luck. They managed to jump on a train last minute getting to the start line 10 minutes before their race started.
Our stand was buzzing with our runners and friends from Prevent Breast Cancer, Maggies and Kidscan. Hospitality certainly put the ‘fun’ in fundraising.
At the end of the race everyone went for a post run drink to The Alchemist Spinningfield where everyone reflected on their times and the atmosphere of the day.
The hospitality team winners are:-
Fastest male team – Arc Inspirations
Fastest female team – Grand Pacific
Fastest oldest team – Robinsons Brewery
Biggest individual team fundraiser – Tattu
Biggest company fundraise – Alchemist
